    One year, I decorated a small table top Xmas tree with mini perfume bottles. Another year, I decorated the mantelpiece with small string fairy lights intertwined with the miniature perfume bottles. The lights reflected on the bottles, got quite a few compliments on it. I try to change things up each year. Oh, I did a table centrepiece with them one year, too.

    I'll bet they were nice with the fairly lights.

    I have a large number of mini bottles, maybe 40-50, and every year I think about making a modernist Christmas wreath out of PVC pipe and inserting the minis where the large ornaments are in a wreath like this:



    Of course, so far I've never gotten around to it.

    I really like this idea & it would also look great as a Christmas table top decoration on a coffee table or a large round table with a tall candle in the very middle. It would look amazing on a glass top table. The decoration could alternate yearly between a Christmas wreath & a table top centrepiece.

    Good idea! Clearly you have a better imagination than I do.

    Doesn't look difficult, either, once you have the cutting tools for the pipe. There's a few tutorials about it online. Here's one of them:

    I keep my empties and a few other items I no longer want to keep in a box marked "Stuff Not Worth Saving".

    Why would you save a box full of stuff not worth saving instead of throwing them away? Seems rather paradoxical.
